Question: What are field sobriety tests in Oklahoma?
Answer: Field sobriety tests are a battery of tests designed to assist law enforcement in determining whether or not an individual may be impaired by alcohol. They were lab tested starting in 1977 and they were done again in ’81, ’88 and 2003. There was a government grant to design the test to help with DUI related charges and helping officers have a way to understand what they are. Dr. Marceline Burns was the one who designed the tests and field tested them in Colorado, California, New Mexico and in Florida.
